Our Operation Christmas Child Experience

God blesses us each and every year to be involved
in this special program in some unique way.
One year it was my daughter's Girl Scout troop
picking up and delivering box
as well as taking care of the drop-off station.
Another year, my son assisted his teacher to
encouraged their entire school to donate
and were able to collect boxes from 90 out of 300 children.
Some years it's simply the fun of filling our own boxes.
One seems to never be enough for my children.
The feeling they get shopping for and filling their boxes is
indescribable!

Here is a little note my daughter slipped into her box...

Such love!  May God bless our boxes and all of the boxes
to touch the hearts of many children this Christmas!
And may he bless each and every hand that offers to help
in any way possible to get these boxes into the hands
of the loved and cherished young children!
Blessings in particular to my friend, Andrea
and her sweet sweet family!
